At a General Meeting of the SURTEES SOCIETY, held in 
Durham Castle, on Tuesday, March 6th, 1917, 

It was resolved, 

Thar CANON FOWLER prepare a third volume of the 
Memorials of Fountains from manuscripts belonging to the 
Marquess of Ripon and to the Ingilby family. 


The first volume of the Memorials of Fountains was issued 
by the Surtees Society in 1863, under the able editorship of 
the late Mr. J. R. Walbran, of Ripon, F.S.A. The second 
volume, which was issued in 1878, contains eighty pages of 
original documents prepared by Mr. Walbran, whose work 
was cut short by his decease on April 9th, 1869. No one 
having been found to carry on the work as he began it, the late 
Canon Raine was requested by the Society to complete the 
volume. This he did, by adding to the above-mentioned 
eighty pages an appendix, consisting chiefly of reprints of 
some valuable brochures by Mr. Walbran, on various subjects 
more or less connected with the Abbey, and the volume, so 
completed, was issued in 1878. One of the tracts therein con- 
tained, namely a note of Fountains Records and their places 
of deposit, suggested to me the preparation of this third volume. 
Among the records described are (1) a book of Bursars' accounts 
preserved in the Studley Muniment Room, and (2) a Memoran- 
dum book, consisting principally of accounts, in the collection 
of MSS. at Ripley Castle. My experience in copying and 
editing Ripon and Durham Account Rolls created a great 
interest in other records of the same kind, and Mr. Walbran's 
abstracts from the Studley and Ripley MSS. led to expectations 
on my part, which have been more than fulfilled. The Marquis 
of Ripon and the late Lady Ingilby most liberally en- 
trusted their MSS. to my care, and I have now copied every 
word of them. They are not too long to be printed in extenso, 
and they will serve as excellent specimens of accounts as kept 
in the fifteenth century. 

The Bursars' book is a folio volume on paper, loose in its 
vellum cover, and it has suffered greatly from damp, as also, 


apparently, from the depredations of mice. It has included, 
when complete, the whole of the receipts and expenses of three 
years, namely 1456-1459, but several leaves have been lost. 
The present number of these is 78 (pages 1 to 156), size about 
11 J by 8 inches. On the cover are inscriptions and scribblings, 
now scarcely legible, but the dates 1668 and 1678 can be dis- 
cerned, and on many of the pages are castings up of sums, 
translations of headings, and other notes, in a seventeenth 
century hand. It is remarkable that none of the totals are 
entered in the original writing; the word Summa was every- 
where left with a blank after it. Those totals which were inserted 
in the seventeenth century, and others that have only now 
been made out, are given in seventeenth century or in modern 
form as the case may be. The Table of Contents now provided 
shows at a glance the various heads under which the receipts 
and expenses are entered. 

Such accounts as these, relating as they often do to the most 
trivial as well as to more important matters, have nevertheless 
a peculiar interest and value as constantly bringing us into 
close mental touch with daily life in Fountains, a place now r 
visited by thousands of people, but by most of these known 
only as a ruined abbey, or an object for a drive. Its memory 
still lives in these old books, " so much more durable and lasting 
is paper than stone and timber." 1 

The Memorandum book, twice described in itself, pp. 95, 
253, as "'penes' (or * propter ') seruos siue famulos," is 
called by Mr. Walbran " Prior Swynton's account book," 2 
and internal evidence indicates that it is a record of 
jbhe management of Thomas Swynton, a monk of Foun- 
tains, who became Abbot in 1471, but I do not know on 
what authority Walbran styled him " Prior." On fo. 8 of 
the book (p. 105) we find expenses " Prioris et Th. Swynton " 
(1453-4), but T. S. may have been Prior at some other time. 
Mr. Walbran has given some interesting particulars about the 
man in Vol. i, p. 149, but nothing with regard to the alleged 
Priorate. It is clear that Swynton held some office of impor- 

1 Mon. Angl. epitomised, 1693. Ep. Dedic.

tance, but I have not found anything to confirm Walbran's 
description of him as " Prior." 

This book is a volume at present consisting of 118 leaves, 
size about 8J by 5J inches. The first three leaves are not 
numbered, then come leaves numbered in the original hand 
on the verso of each, 1, 2, 3, to 110, 102 being repeated, then 
in tens, 120 to 190, then, on the recto of each, 200, 201, 202, 
then eleven leaves not numbered. For present convenience 
all the leaves after 110 are now numbered in pencil consecu- 
tively down to 132, the last fifteen leaves being lost, as was 
noticed by Walbran in 1861 ; the actual number is, as stated 
above, 118. Capital letters from A to S are set on the tops 
of the leaves, A on 1 to 12, B on 12 to 24, and so on; the inten- 
tion appears to have been to enter places under their initial 
letters, Aldfield under A, Baldersby under B, and so on, but 
this plan has not been adhered to with any consistency after 
the first few pages. 

The cover is similar to that of the Bursars' book, but it 
is fast on, and the leaves are in good preservation. On the 
outside is written " Fountains Receipts & Disbursements, about 
the year 1454 No. 25." In the lining of the end cover is some 
interesting church music, some further particulars of which 
will be found on pp. 254, 255. Mr. Walbran has given a good 
account of the contents of this book in Vol. i, 149, note, and 
in Vol. ii, 104 ; they are of a very miscellaneous kind, and not 
written in an orderly fashion. The dates range from 1446 to 
1458, thus beginning ten years earlier and ending one year 
earlier than the Bursars' books. The years are almost always 
expressed in Arabic figures, the units and tens only being 
given. These figures are sometimes used in the castings up, 
J;he pounds being expressed by three dots, the shillings by 
two, and the pence by one, thus, 3:- 9: 7- 6, 3 9$. 1\d. The 
items are often " run on " continuously, not written clearly 
in columns, as they always are in the Bursars' books. All 
the accounts in both books are printed continuously in this 
volume, in order to economise space. In accordance with the 
general practice of the Surtees Society, contractions have, as 
a rule, been expanded, but in many cases it is impossible to 


say how a word would have been written if not contracted. 
Such words, therefore, have either been printed in some con- 
tracted form, or expanded conjecturally, and the printed forms 
represent nothing but what the Editor has thought most likely 
or convenient. When a word occurs again and again on the 
same page, being repeated, perhaps, in every line, it has seemed 
sufficient to print it in a contracted form, after giving it 
in full in the same connexion. So again it has seemed suffi- 
cient to print common Christian names in some shortened form, 
in order to save space. My own opinion is that all MSS. ought 
to be printed with the original contractions and not " expanded" 
in any case. The same opinion was expressed by the late Sir 
Thomas Duff us Hardy in 1878, in his Preface to the Registrum 
Palatinum Dunelmense. As he observes, " Some erroneous 
extensions of abbreviated words are ludicrous, and show the 
danger of attempting to extend contracted words." And he 
gives a page and a half of examples of mistakes committed 
by Dugdale and other learned editors. It is said that very 
few people would read a document printed with contractions. 
I think that anyone who cared to read a Latin document at all 
might soon learn to read it with contractions, and would not 
be misled by wrong expansions. 

If we now compare the two books, we shall find that the 
Bursars' book is very neatly written in a regular, clerkly hand, 
as clear as print or a liturgical MS. This MS., as has been 
shown above, is in some parts defective. The Memorandum 
book is untidily written, but it is in sound condition; some 
leaves, however, have been purposely cut out. It is mainly 
concerned with dealings between Swynton and the Abbey 
servants and tenants, and it shows that wages were often 
jpaid, and rents, etc., received, in kind, as by live stock, textiles, 
etc., the estimated value being set down in money. Thus a 
debtor and creditor account was kept with each servant or 
tenant. Dealings of a similar kind appear to have been usual 
in Scotland in recent times. In a modern story, a minister 
relates his experience with the " merchant " who bought the 
spare produce of his glebe. " No money," he says, " passed 
between us. It was a case of giffgaff, he receiving butter, eggs, 


chickens and sometimes vegetables, and giving us their value 
in bread, groceries, feeding-stuffs, and seeds." 1 

The whole of the period covered (1446-1459) comes within 
the time of Abbot John Grenewell, 1442-1470, and so within 
the reigns of Henry VI and Edward IV. The Bursars' book 
contains many records of the expenses incurred for the Abbot. 2 
In 1457-8 he went to Woburn and to Meaux, both daughter 
houses of Fountains, for the creation of new abbots, and from 
Woburn he went to Oxford to make provision for study, in 
probable connexion with which we note an allowance of 5 
a year to a student. In the same year occurs a payment of 
205. 9d. at the baptism of a son of John Paslew, also ISd. to 
a man hired to show the Abbot the way, apparently to Cros- 
thwaite. The Memorandum book records a payment of 2d. 
to one Tyrqwyte, who, when the Abbot went to Harlsey, in 
1453-4, to baptise the son of Sir James Strangways, showed 
the party the way through a wood, and in the following year 
there were expenses at Ripon for the baptism of the son of 
Roger Ward. It appears to have been usual then, as now, 
to secure the services of great ecclesiastics either to baptise 
or to act as sponsors for the children of their friends. The 
Nevilles and the Percys were glad to engage the Priors of 
Durham for such occasions. Abbot Grenewell was perhaps at 
times in poor health, if we may judge from the many delicacies 
and medicines that were bought for him, as for instance, oysters, 
partridges, quails, pulvis vitalis, pulvis pestilencice, unguents, 
liquorice, and other medicines not described, as well as certain 
utensils. Some of these things were brought by messengers 
as presents, as also venison, fowls, apples, pears, plums, etc. 
The Prior of Newminster, another daughter house of Fountains, 
brought a present of " seal fish." Both " seal fish " and por- 
poises occur in the Durham accounts, 3 and were not, perhaps, 
considered to come under the Benedictine and Cistercian pro-

3 Bede relates how St. Cuthbert and his companions, when on travel and 
under stress of hunger, found " tria frusta delfininse carnis": the metrical 
Life says " Thre peces of porpas thar thai fande," 1. 1769. 



hibition of the flesh of quadrupeds. Birds were not prohibited, 
and we find that they, as well as fish, were often procured, 
even during Lent. One may wonder how the flesh of marine 
mammalia could be made eatable, unless under conditions of 
Polar starvation, but medieval cookery books contain directions 
for the cooking and spicing of porpoise. 1 And " seal fish " was 
specially provided for the Prior of Durham, as well as sent to 
the Abbot of Fountains. The Abbot was supplied with raisins, 
figs and nuts, and with vinum duke and other wines ; moreover, 
on one occasion at least, with panis inunctus, probably what 
we now call " bread and butter." On another occasion 500 
" sprottes " were bought for him for 14e/. These may have 
been cured sprats, or else fresh smelts; the quantity suggests 
the former as more likely. From time to time the Abbot 
sojourned at his manors and granges. He and his retinue 
were once at Baldersby manor for three weeks, and at another 
time he was at Brimham, supplied with fowls, etc., on the spot, 
and having his wine from the Abbey. 

We have very few references to the church or its furniture ; 
these matters would be in the special care of the sacrist, but 
we find mention of many subordinate buildings, the aula 
hiemalis, the lardarium hiemale, the coquina abbatis, the new 
dovecot, the barkhouse and bark-mill, the malt-mill, the smelt- 
mill, the stabulum carectarice, the stabulum parvum juxta 
stabulum commune, the porcaria or piggery, the lanaria or wool- 
house, the rotaria or wheelwright's shop, mention also of mills 
and of smoke-houses (domus fumosce) at several granges. There 
is no mention of a slaughter-house, or of a butcher; sheep and 

1 In the Daily Mail of February 19, 1918, appeared a letter from 
Mr. Herbert G. Ponting, F.R.G.S., in which he deprecates the waste of three 
or four hundred thousand carcases of seals this year, and the loss of so much 
valuable food to a hungry world. He writes from personal knowledge as 
follows : 

*' The fur seal is well known to be of much finer flavour than the hair seal, 
yet I have lived on the flesh of the latter for many months in the Antarctic 
and liked it well. A steak from a young hair seal is excellent, and I should 
certainly relish one to-day. As for fried seal's liver, like Kipling's fat-tailed 
sheep, He who never hath tasted the food, by Allah ! he knoweth not bad 
from good.' . . . And what about whale meat ? I have often eaten it in 
Japan. It is delicious, not unlike juicy beef. Neither seal nor whale meat 
has the least trace of fishy taste." 

Twelve porpoises and seals are mentioned in the provision for the installa- 
tion feast of Abp. Neville in 1466. 


cattle are constantly referred to in Swynton's book as being 
for the kitchen, or being sent to the kitchen, and hides, etc., 
coming from the kitchen, and it seems probable that they 
were killed in a yard adjoining, and the carcases and hides hung 
under the pentises therein. 1 I am not aware that a slaughter- 
house has ever been identified in any ancient monastic plan. 

The mills were mostly water-mills, but there is mention of a 
windmill somewhere in the country. A hospitium at York is re- 
ferred to more than once. On the occasion of an assize, Swynton 
and another had to remain at York for five days, " in hospicio 
nostro." Mr. Walbran was doubtful whether these words re- 
ferred to an inn, or to a house of their own (Vol. i, 149^). But 
we now find that the bursar paid for a pavement repairing at 
York, and for " hespes," also for a candelabrum, and for 
mowing at Thorpe, pro hospicio Ebor., whence it would appear 
that the hospice belonged to the Abbey. The wife of Tho. 
Jacson may have been the housekeeper, and there was also 
a cook at York. 

Cottages, sheds, and other less important buildings were 
mostly constructed of timber, or of wattle and daub, and were 
thatched, but Swynton mentions 3,000 " sclates " (Yorkshire 
slates no doubt) being sent to Brangerhouse, and the same 
number to Galphayhouse ; these houses would probably be 
stone-built. The Abbey church and principal monastic build- 
ings would be roofed with lead. 

For some time before the middle of the fifteenth century, 
the Cistercians had done away with their original institution 
of conversi or lay brethren, who were occupied in servile 
labours, and the monks employed, instead of them, a large 
staff of paid servants. At the end of the Memorandum book 
is a list of 117 Fountains servants in about 1456; here their 
names and particular occupations are set down. In the 
Bursars' book we have further information about them under 
the heads of Stipendia Operariorum, and Mercedes Famulorum, 
and Forestariorum, and it may be sufficient here to refer to 
these lists. The Abbot, the Prior, and other chief officers, 
had servants of their own, paid by the Abbey. All were men

or boys except the lotrix, but the washing did not all devolve 
on her, there was also a communis lotor. The list includes 
five tascatares or tascarii, who appear to have been taskmasters 
or " foremen." Craftsmen also, as carpenters, smiths, wheel- 
wrights, the communis scissor, etc., are included, and even the 
Abbot's gentlemen (generosi). We are told in Rites that the 
Prior of Durham was " attended upon both with gentlemen 
and yeomen of y e best in y e countrie as y e honorable service 
of his house deserved no less," and we may safely assume that 
the same might have been said of the Abbot of Fountains in 
the fifteenth century. 

Among the hundreds of curious and interesting details in 
these accounts, it is difficult to make a selection, but, besides 
what have been already mentioned, the following notes may 
serve to give some idea of their extent and variety. 

Sales of wool of six different qualities, of hides, straw, 
chaff, and manure, of pigs, horses, lead, tanners' bark, cheese 
and butter, neat cattle, hay, and corn. Towards the beginning 
of each year's receipts we find De satisfacientibus, and De 
Eventibus. These are classed together in 1458-9, and appear 
to be certain fees for church offices, oblations, and tithes of 
corn, calves, and bees, fees for absolutions of the departed, 
oblations at the head of St. Anne, at the shrine of St. Aelred, and 
at the chapel of St. Michael, tithes from a few places named, etc. 
Also, De Extractis Curiarum, sums " extracted " or profits, 
of nineteen manorial courts. Then balances of the accounts 
of the masters of the herds and flocks, proceeds of wool sales 
and of pannage, and De pratis venditis, which last heading seems 
to refer to the grass of meadows sold standing. These receipts 
are followed by eight lists of places from which annual rents 
were collected. Each list consists of about thirty places, more 
or less, named in topographical order for the convenience of 
the collectors, so that it is quite easy to trace their travels on 
a map. One of these journeys extended as far as to some 
places near Huddersfield, the return being made by Ferrybridge, 
from which place there was a long but direct route to Fountains 
by way of Boroughbridge. The total of annual rents in 1456-7 
was 808 Is. 2%d., and in the two following years nearly the 


same. Among these are some " pepper rents," then amounting 
to 1 lb., valued at lid. and at 22d., and not reduced, as later, 
to a peppercorn only. Then follow arrears of rents to the 
amount of 143 19s. After receipts come expenses, first 
Firmce Forinsecce, rents or other dues paid by the Abbey to 
various churches, etc. (85 14s. S^d.). Then the expenses of 
three granges and five tithe barns, servants, or labourers' 
wages, harvesting, in which work women took great part, hay- 
making, ploughing, threshing, winnowing, weeding, collecting 
and carriage of tithe corn and hay, care of cattle, etc., expenses 
of the Magister Averiorum in branding with St. Wilfrid's burn- 
ing iron or otherwise, etc., driving cattle and sheep, agistment, 
etc., and of the Magister Ovium for care of the sheep, driving 
them, etc. Much tar was bought; mixed with grease it formed 
the sheep-salve then in general use. The shepherd carried his 
tar box about with him, as well as his crook and a pair of 
shears. Sheep washings and shearings at nine different places 
are entered separately. Next come entries of wine bought, 
iron bought, ploughshares, osmunds, 1 shoeing of horses, 
wainclouts, nails, and a " pair " of steps. Spices bought, 
including medicines, " pepper of ginger," almonds, etc. Her- 
rings and other fish, chiefly salted, including a few salted eels 
for the Abbot. Warnesturce, including wax, honey, which took 
the place of sugar in medieval cookery, lamp oil, onions, nut 
oil, salt fish, raisins, leeks, figs, and salt. Staurum, i.e. stock, 
including boars, sows with little pigs, many horses, mares with 
foals, etc. Certain sums, Denarii liberati, paid to the lord 
Abbot, to the monachus coquince, to the monachus tannarice, and 
to the masters of the cattle, the sheep, of the works generally, 
and of the lead-mines. Swynton mentions a Custos fabricce 
ecclesice. Then come Varice Expensce, extending over several 
pages. Among these we may note yearly payments of 7s. to 
the Pope's collector, of Sd. to the Corporation of York for 
gogyle, 1 5 to a scholar, 10s. for yeast, also medicines for the lord 
Abbot, many law expenses, including a brief for the delivery 
of John Esby, who was imprisoned at the suit of W. Hull, 
an apostate, shoeing of horses, horse bread for horses of Sir James 
Strangways, expenses of the Duke of York at Swanley, paper,

parchment, saddles and harness, oat straw for the Abbot's 
chamber, watching the flocks at Fountains Fell, boots, shoes, 
and leggings, materials for ink, sea coal, salt, yarn, dyeing, 
locks, getting plaster, shearing cloth, rakes, etc., to one carry- 
ing vessels of bragot, 1 for fowls against Lent, for goat's flesh, 
for 10 Ib. of bronze for a magna olla, for seeking stolen oxen, 
for a " pair of clavichords," for little oil-barrels, for green 
tartaryn 1 for a vestment, for bolting-cloths, to the poor on 
Maundy Thursday, for mending a silver sprinkler, for a felt 
hat for the bursar, budge, 1 and other things for the Abbot men- 
tioned above, repairs of a clock, hemp seed, a myrtle [?] for 
the Abbot, 24 rakes, canvas for woolsacks, a pair of beads for 
the Abbot, knives and gloves for the servants at Christmas, 
curing the Abbot's horse, dishes and bowls, soap, charcoal and 
seacoal, lepes 1 and skeps, razors and sharpening thereof, a deer- 
skin for the Abbot's boots, oat straw for his camera, quicksets 
for hedges, gold thread and silk for vestments, mole-catching 
and mole-skins, and spreading of mole-hills, a present of 75. Sd. 
to a doctor of Rievaulx and his servant, contribution of 105. to 
an Oxford student, to a son of John Paslew as a christening 
present, with expenses, 205. 9d. ; paper for a map of the world, 
7 quires for accounts, pulvis pestilencice, medicines for the 
brethren, making faggots and hedges, watching a pinfold, 
solatia to friends at Ripon, cabbage and plants, album ferrum 
(tin plate) for lanterns, the Corpus Christi play, special pro- 
vision for guests, as fresh fish for the Lord William Scrope, 
swans and other birds for the Earl of Northumberland, for 
repairing an aumbry at the church and a new lock, collecting 
plants, probably self-sown or other quicksets, required for a 
hedge by the side of a ditch, a reredos for Crosthwaite. In 
the changing of a " saltsaler " a sum of 14s. Sd. was paid. 
Tanners' bark was " excorticated " at Wheldrake. They 
paid 20s. to the Vicar of Arncliffe for tithe of Arnclifcote. We 
find a payment for 85. Qd. for pitch and rosin pro navibus, and 
the Abbey may have had some ferry-boats or other small 
vessels of their own on the rivers, though no other mention 
of such craft occurs in these accounts or in Swynton's book. 

1 For this and other unfamiliar words see the Glossary. 


Under Pannus linens we find linen and buckram for the 
Abbot, and linen for the barber, for the Infirmary, the Refec- 
tory, and the Abbot's store-room. Under Pannus laneus, a 
scapular of say for the Abbot, white cloth for the Cistercian 
habits of the novices, kersey for the Abbot, russet for the ser- 
vants, an almuce for the Abbot, and much white and black 
cloth for monastic habits. Swynton mentions cloths called 
kanyete, meld, albus, and grisius. 

Charges for Eeparaciones extend over five pages in 1457-8. 
In 1456-7 the leaves that would have contained them are lost. 
In 1458-9 they are incomplete. We find entries of 10 J and of 
3 acres of meadows pro tectura tenementorum, as if coarse grass 
was used for thatch (see p. 53w, and Glossary under Tectura) ; 
numerous repairs of houses, sheds, walls, fisheries, etc. ; making 
a fence between the lands of the abbots of Fountains and of 
Sawley in Craven; a similar fencing off at Milby appears in 
the Memorandum book; making water-gates or drains, hedging 
and ditching ; repairing the supports of the banks of the Nidd ; 
hedging round coney-garths; mending the great clock; building 
new houses, etc.; embanking by the Nidd and in Borrowdale, 
cutting brushwood and making fences ; binding books ; mending 
the windows of the church and other windows; payments or 
return presents to the Prior of Newminster in 1457-8 for a 
mantle and for fish and " seal-fish," which things come 
strangely among reparaciones ; Swynton records a payment 
of 8s. for two ells of black cloth (a very high price), given to 
the Prior of Newminster for bringing seal-fish to the Abbot 
of Fountains in 1455. Under repairs we further find the mend- 
ing of a causey and the clearing out of " Fontans dicke " at 
Wheldrake, the repairing of the crown and chest of St. Anne, 
etc. The repairs in 1458-9 are of much the same kind; they 
include those of smoke-houses at five places, the plastering of 
a new house, getting stone, repairing a pavement at York, 
making a dovecot at Rainton, fixing the mill axle and repairing 
the mill and the miller's house, as also the causey again, at 
Wheldrake, making a parva domus for 3s. 6d., repairing the 
cowhouse at Dacre, and a tenement in the Horsefair at Ripon, 


Under Stipendia Operariorum, remaining only in 1457-8, 
we find a part payment of 13s. 4d. for making a clock, and pay- 
ments for getting garthwood, stone, and quicksets; also for 
sawing and work in the wheelwright's shop and about the 
monastery, in glazing and plumbing, in carpenter's and smith's 
work, work about the stable and dovecot at Marton, cleansing 
the ditch at Rowell, etc. 

Under Cariagia come payments for carriage of timber, 
wool, two horse-loads of salmon from Baldersby (on the Wharf e) 
to the monastery, lead, salt from the sea to the monastery, 
tithe corn, tithe hay, plaster, planks, tar, wine, seacoal from 
Rale, co. of Durham, marl, moss, sand, leather, malt, etc. 

Under Dona (gratuities), sums varying in amount, to a 
king's messenger, to one bearing letters from the curia Romana, 
to the herald of the lord of Norfolk, to a gentleman of the lord 
John Nevill, to a prisoner of the lord of Egremont, to servants 
of the abbots of Kirkstall and Meaux, to various lawyers and 
scribes, to the bailiffs for the delivery of John Esby from prison 
in London, and to the jailors there, to the players belonging 
to the monastery, to an anchorite of Richmond, to minstrels 
at Christmas, to a messenger of the abbot of Woburn, to the 
boy bishops of Ripon and of York, to the lord of Sarum's fool, 
to a Durham minstrel and to many others, and to fools from 
Byland and elsewhere, one of these named Adam, another 
Solomon, to Roger Ward's servant bringing a letter to the Abbot, 
to the preaching friars in rye, and to other friars in money, to 
a blind minstrel, to a poor man Sd. on account of a fire, the 
guild of the Crucifix at Ripon, to divers minstrels by the lord 
Abbot, to a fabulator ignotus, to two men bringing quicksets, 
to wandering monks, to men bringing venison, partridges, fruit, 
etc., to the king's minstrels and their " boys," to a bearer of 
royal letters, to the novices at their bleeding times, to a royal 
messenger bringing the privy seal, to one going to the Holy 
Land, " to two Scots " on various occasions, apparently men 
seeking work. 

Allocations and defalcaciones form the subject of a long 
list of reductions on rents, and are not of very much interest, 
the reasons not being given as a rule, but we find allowances 


for lands destroyed by floods, or diminished by the digging 
of a quarry, for a wall thrown down, for butter and cheese 
supplied by tenants beyond their agreements, for rent of 
Whixley unjustly detained by " Banke " (with whom the Abbey 
had a lawsuit, " in materia Ric. Banke "), for various agreements 
and other business transactions, etc. There was an allowance 
of 2s. for a bow given by the Abbot, and we learn from Swynton 
that a bow had a year or two before been bought at Lincoln 
at the same price. 

After these come payments in finibus, brevibus, et amercia- 
mentis, of no great interest; then Expensce minutce, never ex- 
ceeding a few pence, but incurred for a great variety of little 
things, such as (1456-7) a bellstring for St. Michael's chapel, 
a felt hat, spurs, and water-budgets for T. Swynton, a cande- 
labrum for the hospice at York (only 4d.), several little things 
for the Abbot, as oysters, cords, mending a silver spoon, soap, 
a book, black silk, carrying drink for him to Brimham, paper, 
gloves, first a pair at 2d. which he probably found not good 
enough, for he soon after had three more pairs at 4d. ; spurs for 
the bursar, two couples of rabbits, materials for ink, red wax, 
and vermilion. In 1457-8 similar charges, and, for the Abbot, 
" Cotum " (qu. cotton ?), white thread, wine and pears, liquorice, 
riddle-cord, painting his staff, thread for his chamber; also for 
others, a felt hat for T. Swynton, triaca, a " herenseu," pepper, 
ginger, door-locks, shoes, and 4d. for looking for a lost fawn. 
There is only a fragment of the account for 1478-9; its contents 
are much as above so far as they go. 

Expensce d'ni Abbatis are for several journeys on business 
or pleasure, but the record contains few particulars of special 
interest. On one occasion Id. was paid for navigium at Acaster, 
perhaps only the ferry. Swynton records the same at York, 
probably the old ferry where Lendal Bridge now is. 

Expensce Itinerancium are set forth at great length in each 
year. They were incurred by the principal officers of the 
monastery, or by persons sent by them, and are mostly of a 
similar nature to those of the Abbot. Sometimes messengers 
went to borrow money, or to buy commodities, as wine, salt 
salmon, and fowls, or to York for groceries. Charges of 5s. 4d. 


were incurred by some who went a-hunting at times, and there 
were expenses of William Wilson at Aberford in the time of 
his sickness, Is.; and of John Esby visiting Wm. Hartcastell 
when sick in Nidderdale, 6d. On one occasion John Overend 
went as far as Wetherby with an " extraneous " monk. 

Then come Expensce Curiarum, the expenses incurred in 
holding fifteen different manorial courts ; these did not amount 
to much. 

Then payments Clericis et Feodariis, twenty-seven in num- 
ber, including the Vicar of Crosthwaite, and then Mercedes 
famulorum, only fifty-five as against 117 in the list at the end 
of the Memorandum book, so that we may suppose above half 
of the latter to have been paid only in kind. Under Mercedes 
Forestariorum thirteen are named, but there are only two in 
Swynton's list; these two were perhaps in a servile position, 
not master foresters. Next come payments Conventui in 
habitu, which seems to mean all members of the house in 
monastic habit, amounting to 40 16s. IQd., with some small 
extras, viz. to the Prior in regardo yearly, 13s. 4^.; to the Sub- 
prior, 3s 4d. ; to the Cantor, 3s. 4c. ; to the Succentor, Is. 8d. ; 
to the deacons of the cloister, 3s. 4d. ; and to four other officers 
in habitu, 5 6s. Wd. We have seen above that the Abbot 
and certain officers received salaries, or at any rate had yearly 
sums placed at their disposal; the Abbot had 31 3s. 4d. All 
this seems to be far removed from the old monastic idea that 
proprietas, i.e. a monk's having anything of his own, was a 
mortal sin. 

In each year there are several entries under the heads 
Solucio debiti antiqui and Solucio debiti novi. Some of the 
amounts are considerable, but they explain themselves, and 
need not be further referred to here. Then come Terrce emptce, 
quite small purchases of land ; followed by Expensce pro materia 
de Crostwat, " ut plenius patet per tutivillum," or, " ut plenius 
patet Tutivill." Tutivillus occurs frequently in these accounts, 
and the term is explained in the Glossary, where also the dif- 
ferent uses of patet are pointed out. Next come some entries 
under Bladum emptum, which, being reckoned by acres and 
roods, would seem to refer to standing corn, wheat, rye, and 


oats, in most cases bought from tenants and farm bailiffs. 
Lastly come purchases of wheat, rye, barley, oats, and pease, 
bought by the quarter ; these accounts afford much information 
upon the prices of corn. The average prices per quarter, 
omitting fractions of %d., work out as follows:

Besides these, there were supplied small quantities of grey 
pease, barley-malt, and " Crepis." It will be noticed that the 
prices are a little higher in the wage price than in the purchase 
price, viz. wheat, 9|d. higher; Barley, fd. less ; Oats, fd.; Rye, 
4jd. ; Green Pease, 3f d. less ; other Pease, 2s. more. The last may 
have been some sorts of garden pease supplied at a high price 
as being rarities. From the large amount of green pease men- 
tioned in Swynton's book, it seems likely that they formed a 
common article of diet. See Pisce virides in the Glossary. 

So far as I have been able to make out, the prices of live- 
stock are either about the same as Thorold Rogers gives for 
the same period in his History of Agriculture, or lower. As 
I have included the many entries in Swynton's book in the 
averages that I have taken, it may be that oxen, sheep, etc., 
were valued to those who were employed by the Abbey, at 
something below their market prices. But as there were so 
many different descriptions of cattle and sheep, it is often 
difficult to decide precisely what is meant by any one term, 
and in the cases of calves, lambs, and young pigs, the price 
naturally varied very much according to their ages, as in 
all animals according to their condition. Cows and sheep 
were often valued together with their calves and lambs, and 
porcellus may mean anything from a sucking pig to one almost 
full grown. 


The prices of the principal kinds of stock that occur in these 
accounts are as follows: 

Horses are priced at 10s. to 53s. 4d. Mares, 12s. 4d. and 
26s. 8d. Bulls, 5s. to 27s. Oxen, 8s. to 15s. Cows, 4s. 6d. 
to 13s. 6d. ; with their calves, 6s. to 12s. Vaccce debiles, 4s.

Stirketts, Is. 2d. to 5s. Twynters, 3s. 4d. to 5s. Heifers, 4s. 
to 6s. 8d. ; with their calves, 5s. to 9s. 6d. Calves, Is. to 2s. 4d. 
Rams and Hurtards, lOd. to Is. 8d. Muttons or wethers 
(multones), Sd. to 2s. 2f d. Sheep (oves), 3d. to Is. Qd. ; with 
their lambs, lOd. and Is. 2d. Boars, 8s. to 13s. Pigs, 3d. to 
2s. d. Sow and 6 pigs, 3s. Porcelli, Id. to Is. Sturds

Returning now to Swynton's book, we shall find that it 
is not compiled on any definite pre-arranged plan, as, indeed, 
has been shown above, and therefore it does not lend itself to 
any such analysis as that which we have given of the Bursars' 


books. We can do little more than point out a number of 
miscellaneous details scattered through the whole book, and 
as they will all be found in the Index, there is no need for 
references here. The following are some of the principal sub- 
jects of the memoranda, and they will be followed by notes 
of curious or otherwise interesting particulars. At the begin- 
ning is an alphabetical list of places, with a few references to 
pages, and at the end, a similar list of servants and craftsmen. 
The greater part of the book consists of accounts of business 
transactions between Swynton and others on behalf of the 
Abbey, and the chief or responsible servants, and tenants, or 
sometimes their widows or executors, taking the form of debtor 
and creditor reckonings, not always easy to be understood. 
The following case is a simple one. Richard Lamberd, tascator, 
requires on account of threshings sums together amounting to 
13s. 9d. So he asks Th. Swynton to let him have a bullock 
worth 3s. 8d., having already received wheat, rye, pease, and 
oats worth 12s. 5^d., and 4eL in cash. Thus there will still be 
due to him lljd., besides which he asks for 6d. for labour with 
seacoal ; this item, however, is not allowed, and so is crossed out. 
Then there are accounts of rents, etc., received by Swynton, 
and of expenses incurred by him on behalf of the monastery. 
Thus on one occasion he had received 30s., but spent in a number 
of ways, of which particulars are given, 15 7s. l\d., so that 
there was due to him 13 17s. l^d. There are accounts with 
the masters of the herds and of the flocks ; a list of debts owing 
by the abbot of Fountains to the abbot of St. Mary's at York; 
purchases of cattle and of sheep ; the shaving of Th. Swynton, 
John Quixlay, and others, and their expenses at the Lent assize 
at York, for some lawsuits in which they were interested. They 
sojourned in their own hospice, living on Lenten fare, but 
treating divers gentlemen in York to wine. Expenses of 
smelting and carriage of lead, of T. S. raising money in Craven, 
harvest wages, often earned by women, sales of wood, manure, 
straw, and chaff, purchases of corn at the winter fair, servants 
and craftsmen's wages in money and in kind, a very clear 
example of which will be found in fo. llv. of the MS. These 
men often received wages in sheep or cattle, two persons some- 


times sharing an ox or a cow between them, or they were sup- 
plied with togas, boots and shoes, etc., or with diet while at 
work, or with money, or with any or all of these things, 
according to agreement. When, as was sometimes the 
case, they had small holdings, they paid their rent more 
or less in live-stock, or in textiles, presumably home- 
woven, as did many other of the small tenants. These 
mixed rents were called Denarii et denariatce, " pennies and 
pennyworths." On one occasion a carpenter was employed 
for from two days to eight weeks and three days at each of 
six outlying places, his longest job being to make a domus 
fumosa or smoke-house (p. 213). Rents of cottages and small 
holdings, accounts with about twenty craftsmen and principal 
servants, a curious English memorandum near the end recording 
claims made by John Kettlewell in connection with charge of 
herds and flocks. In this paragraph occur the curious words 
ortys and epheds, for which see Glossary. Then come receipts 
of wool at Kilnsey from ten places in Craven, next the Nomina 
famulorum, and lastly a few small memoranda. 

Among many other matters of detail, some of which have 
been referred to already, the following may be noted. In 
1456 we find T. Swynton and John Selby the bursar at York, 
for some purpose not stated, about the feast of All Saints, 
and as there is a payment of Id. for bread for the Abbot, it 
would appear that he was there also. They had flesh on Sunday, 
Oct. 31, and on All Saints' Day (Monday, Nov. 1) a goose and 
supper, also a goose and supper on All Souls' Day (Tuesday, 
Nov. 2), supper on Wednesday, and breakfast on Thursday; 
they paid also for horse-shoeing and candle, and for bread, 
drink, and horse-bread, so that they doubtless rode on horse- 
back to and from York. They would most likely be lodged 
in their own hospice. 

There are four payments for absolution after death, besides 
two in the Bursars' book and two in Vol. i, 148, 196. On this 
subject something will be found in the Glossary. The payments 
would perhaps answer to our Burial fees. A cow was given in 
alms at the gate on All Souls' Day, presumably in the form of 
beef, and for similar distributions of corn, malt, and herrings, 


on certain other days (see Vol. i, 258). John Barbour, of Ripon, 
appears to have had a cow for curing one of the Abbot's coach- 
men. Near the beginning is a short note of the bounds of 
Melmerby, near Ripon. The Vicar of Crosthwaite was provided 
with a blue toga. One Robert Weste received a sheep valued 
at I4d. on the occasion of his wife's churching. The relict of 
William Wartre, a carpenter, received 15s. on the day of his 
burial, besides bread and ale through the week. The relict of 
Tho. Pymson received gloves and sheepskins and two sheep, 
pro nupciis suis, soon after which another Tho. Pymson, prob- 
ably her son, received, pro nupciis, gloves and sheepskins, and 
by these words we are probably to understand the weddings 
of the parties named. The gloves would be for the ceremony, 
and the sheep perhaps for the wedding feast, but the meaning 
of the sheepskins is not evident. 1 These receipts appear to 
have been in part satisfaction for wages due. At p. 238 is a 
long account of purchases of corn, but the prices are not stated. 
Next before this are some large purchases of live-stock, the prices 
of which are given. On pp. 181, 182 we find two curious 
words, " ellers " and " temple," both of which are explained in 
the Glossary. A blue toga was made for the Vicar of Cros- 
thwaite. Felt hats were worn by monks on travel; Swynton 
had one pro equitacione, price lOd. The nundince hiemales, so 
often mentioned, would be St. Wilfrid's fair in October, still 
maintained at Ripon. The field-names and other place-names, 
of which there are so many in pp. 182 to 190, are to a great 
extent those of places long forgotten and that cannot now be 
identified, single houses and the like that have been extinct 
for ages. Nevertheless their names would be of great interest 
to any who might be collecting and studying similar words. 
Gloves, as well as boots and shoes, are very often mentioned, 
and in considerable numbers. The former appear to have been 
made by local glovers, especially Robert Glover, of Ripley, out 
of local hides. Two dozen pairs were bought for autumn, i.e. 

1 The mention of gloves is interesting, because it was customary then, as 
now, to wear gloves on the way to church, and to take them off for the join- 
ing of hands. In a representation of the sacrament of marriage in painted 
glass now in the Chapter-house at Durham the bridegroom and bride are 
joining ungloved hands, the former holding a glove in his disengaged hand. 


for the harvesters, and cost 2s., as did other dozens, all at Id. 
a pair. On one occasion the master of the works had three 
dozen, costing 85. 4d., probably for the masons and others em- 
ployed by him. In the Bursars' book, however, we find a pair for 
the Abbot priced at 2d., others for him at 4d., and another pair 
for the Vicar of Topcliffe at 9d., but Thorold Rogers mentions 
gloves given to distinguished visitors which cost 2s. I0d., and 
in later times more than twice that sum. There were, as 
Thorold Rogers points out, three sorts of gloves : for labourers 
at Id. a pair, for ordinary use at 2d. to 6d., and for complimen- 
tary presents at much higher prices. Calves were bought for 
the Abbot's kitchen for the feast of St. Ambrose, and lambs 
for Trinity Sunday and Corpus Christi. Twelve bullocks were 
sent as a present for the installation banquet of Archbishop 
William Booth, in 1452. We learn something about Lenten 
fare from the account of Brothers Swynton and Quixlay, who 
were frequently travelling together, at the York assizes, men- 
tioned above. On the first day they had fish. On the second, 
fish, salt, and mustard, " etc." On the third, fish and spices, 
figs and raisins. On the fourth, as on the second, on the fifth, 
as on the third. Then they had " human " bread as well as 
horse bread, and drink all the time. We have three accounts 
with Robert Glover, of Ripley, showing what hides he received, 
and what he did with them. He appears to have dealt in hides, 
gloves, etc., and on two occasions to have supplied leather pro 
Organis. Many different kinds of hides are named. Women 
helped in the harvest fields, and probably in the hayfields also. 
Business, such as paying for corn, was transacted occasionally 
on Sundays, and even whole accounts were made up. So, too, 
on great feasts. 1 On one occasion T. Swynton received from 
the Bursar I2d. ad ostium lecti sui, and another time 2d. ad 
ostium Cellarii ; perhaps these particulars were inserted as 
helps to memory. Rye straw was provided for the church, 
probably for the floors of the stalls. Rushes were procured in 
order to be used for floors, as we have seen that oat straw was 
used for the Abbot's camera. Pigs were fed on grey pease, 
and pigeons on the green variety. Cattle were branded with 

1 See Index under." Holy days " and " Sundays." 


St. Wilfrid's burning-iron as well as with owners' marks. Three 
thousand slates were carried to Brangerhouse, and the like to 
Galphay house. On one occasion 100 stockfish were bought 
at York for 29s. Porterage and cords to tie them up with 
cost 2d. They would doubtless be carried to the Abbey on 
pack-horses. Another time 100 cost 20s. Stockfish were 
bought also at Hull and at Scarborough. On one occasion 
the carriage of 500 " ad aquam apud Hull " cost 2%d. They 
were probably bought of a merchant there, and shipped at 
the old harbour, to go up the rivers to York or Boroughbridge, 
and thence by road to the Abbey. In the seventeenth century 
we are told of " Hull, whose greatest riches is ascribed to the 
gainefull trade they haue by Hand-fish, dried and hardened, 
commonly called stock-fish." 1 Andirons were made for the 
Abbot's camera by the smith of Aldfield, who did a good deal 
of other work in 1454. 

We have occasional indications of some dispute between 
the Convent and the Vicar of Crosthwaite, of which benefice 
the Abbot and Convent were the patrons. In or about 1455 
Swynton went to Rievaulx, Byland, and Meaux, about a bulla 
generalis in connection with Crosthwaite. There is a note of 
the expenses of Th. Swynton and Mr. Th. Farleton (6s. Id.) 
going with four horses as far as Burgh under Stainmoor, in 
1455, to speak, communicate, and meet with the Vicar of 
Crosthwaite, " sed non venit, etc." It is interesting to find 
that the monks of Fountains, like those of Durham, cultivated 
friendly relations with the principal orders of friars, bestowing 
on them presents of money, corn, etc. To the preaching friars 
of York a cow was given on the vigil of the Nativity of St. Mary, 
1455. 2 Some account of customary rents in kind in Nidderdale, 
in 1454, will be found on p. 244. 

The Glossary and the List of Places will, it is hoped, be 
found helpful. The former makes no pretence to completeness 
as a Glossary, having been constructed solely with reference 
to the present volume. The latter contains all the names of 

1 Speed, Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World, 1631, Bk. i, ch. 41, 
p. 81. 

* On this subject, see Index, under Friars. 


places that occur, identified as far as possible. In the case 
of the many field-names that have lost their meanings and 
have long been forgotten, we can only give a reference or two 
to the text. Every place is named in the general Index in its 
most important forms, and with references to all the passages 
in which it occurs. I regret that I have not been able to do 
more than I have done in the illustration of the original matter. 
The infirmities of age and the consequent removal from books 
and libraries have stood in the way, but I trust that this volume, 
the twelfth and last that I have had the honour of editing for 
the Surtees Society, will prove acceptable to those of our mem- 
bers who are interested in monastic antiquities. 

I have done the best that I could with the Index, but 
cannot guarantee absolute correctness or completeness. 

It now only remains for me to record the thanks of the 
Surtees Society and myself to the Marquis of Ripon for allowing 
me the use of his MS., to Mr. Oswald H. Wade, his Lordship's 
agent, for his trouble in connexion therewith, to the Hon. 
Lady Ingilby, and to Sir William Ingilby, for the use of the 
Ripley Castle MS. Also to my friend, Mr, John Bilson, F.S.A., 
for the loan of the printed volumes of the Chartulary, which 
have afforded material help in the identification of places.

The contents of the Memorandum Book are of such a kind that it would 
be almost impossible to tabulate them. 


[The first leaf, which would include the original heading, is wanting. 
The corresponding leaf of 1457-8 is followed by De Exiiibua Curiarum, which 
is on fo. 1 recto or p. 1 of the manuscript as now numbered. The missing 
portion was doubtless much the same as what will be found below, at the 
beginning of 1457-8.]

2 The scribe seems to have been going to write granorum, as in the pre- 
ceding entry, and to have forgotten to erase.

3 The a and the contraction for us have been carefully scratched out, 
In 1457-8 acoiV has been similarly erased, but is just perceptible. Perhaps 
the scribes hesitated between the forms diaconis and diaconibus, both of which 
were in use. D'Arnis under Diacon.

1 Among the treasures of Fountains was *' j pece of Saynt Ane scalpe 
sett in a pece of sylver ungilt " (Mem. Fountains, i, 289). They probably had 
also a relic of St. Aelred of Rievaulx (see Walbran's note, loco cit.). The 
monks of Fountains tried to obtain the body of St. Robert of Knaresborough 
soon after the death of that hermit saint on September 24th, 1218, doubtless 
intending to enshrine it in their new choir, then in course of erection (Vol. i, 
171). They had a supposed rib of St. Lawrence (Vol. i, 289). 

2 Much concerning lead, lead ore, lead ashes, etc., is to be seen in Vol. i, 
402-405, and Vol. ii, 91.

Each of the forel covers is stiffened by six leaves of strong 
paper, on which is written some very florid Mass music on 
five-line staves. This cannot be studied without taking the 
binding entirely to pieces. The following words of the Gloria 
appear: "In terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis. Glorifi- 
camus te gratias agimus tibi propter magnam gloriam tuam. 
Domine fili vnigenite. Qui tollis peccata mundi miserere nobis.

Qui sedes ad dexter am patris miserere nobis. Quoniam tu 
solus sanctus. Tu solus altissimus. Laudamus te, benedicimus 
te, adoramus te, Domine. Amen," and musical directions: 
" Tenor," " Contra Tenor." To the first syllable of " Amen " 
there appear about forty-two notes. This is interesting as 
perhaps showing the sort of music that had been in use at 
Fountains when the book was bound, c. 1450. Other leaves 
taken from choir-books and used as end-leaves, are referred 
to in Vol. ii, 99.

ABSCONSA, a lantern. 

ABSOLUCIO (defunctorum). A term said to have been applied to the Order for 
the Burial of the Dead, as it still is by Roman Catholics, with reference 
to the Collect Absolve, qucesumus, Domine, animam famuli tui, etc. In 
1311 absolution was pronounced on the graves of a father, mother, and 
grandfather, as a condition on which their descendant was to restore 
certain lands to the Church (Whitaker, Richmondshire, i, 111). For 
references to the present volume, see the Index. The term may have 
denoted something more than the Burial Office. A correspondent of 
Maundrell the traveller wrote to him about a Greek Bishop sending 
several priests to pray for and absolve a man who had died without 
absolution, on the discovery of his body about ten years after his 
death (Letter dated April 12, 1700, in Maundrell's Journey from 
Aleppo, 6th ed., 1740, p. 152).

carps and beer, came into England all in a year." 
BIGIS, in p. 58, seems to mean in or by two-horse conveyances. 
BLADTJM, a general term for corn of all sorts. 
BLAWFRONT, a term for certain white cloth, probably derived from the name 

of the man from whom it was bought, which occurs p. 20, and in 1436

CAEBONES, charcoal, " coals " in the earlier sense. Mineral coal was dis- 
tinguished as carbo maris, or sea coal, until, first in coal-producing

and carbones marini are both mentioned inp. 51.

COLLOBIUM, a sleeveless tunic or tabard. 

COLUMBARIUM, a pigeon-cote.

CBESSAND, p. 10, probably a cresset.

DIETA, a day's work.

DON., usually stands for dono, or, with the usual contraction for ' is,' donls. 

The plural seems to be often used for a single present, in or among

standard size. Also textiles, of which a dozen ells seem to be indicated. 
DRAPA, a sheep or cow fatted for the kitchen after its milk has dried up ; 

a drape. 

ELEVACIO, (1) raising a building in height ?, p. 54 ; it cost, with nails, only 
I2d., p. 55; (2) levying or " raising " of money, p. 153. 

ELLERS, p. 181, a dialect form both of elders and of alders. The wood of the 
alder resists decay while wet, and was used for water pipes. " Olders " 
are frequently mentioned with " hassels " and " hollyns " in Vol. I, 
415418. It is probably the alder that is meant in these accounts. 

EPHEDS, p. 245. E.D.D. has heaf-hod, the home or homestead, from heaf, 
to settle a new flock of sheep in its pasture, and of sheep, to cling to 
the same spot. The shepherd sees that the sheep are hea/ed or settled.

FOLARDIS, p. 143, perhaps foolards or professional fools, from fool, a jester, 

with the pejorative suffix -ard, as in drunkard, sluggard, etc. The 

word foolard is not recorded in N.E.D. " Will, ffolard " occurs five 

times; in his case it may have been a surname, not a description.

German often means brown, or " whity-brown. " Brown paper is often

refuse is meant, and it appears to have had a money value. The 
term used to be applied to spinning refuse, as in Bloomfield's ballad 
of " Richard and Kate," " sweep up your orts, and get your hat." 

OSMUND, a fine quality of iron, formerly imported from the Baltic in barrels 
of small rods or bars, hence the common plural form Osmunds. 

OVES, a general term for sheep, especially for oves matrices. 

PAIR, formerly not only two but a "set of things forming a collective whole." 
N.E.D. Thus, a pair of beads, p. 50; a pair of steps, probably an iron 
ladder, p. 11. Hence, a complex musical instrument, as a pair of 
organs, clavichords, p. 49; virginals, bagpipes. Often two, as a pair

PANNAGIUM, pannage, the right to put swine to feed on acorns, beech-mast, 
etc., in the lord's woods. Roadside pannage is a privilege still enjoyed 
by the poor in Bucks., and elsewhere. 


PAR PRECULARUM, a " pair " or string of beads, now called a chaplet or 
rosary. See PAIR. 

PARVA DOMUS, p. 85. As it cost only 3s. 4d. to make this place, it may have 
been something like St. Cuthbert's casula, " quotidianis necessitatibus 
apta." Bedce Vit. S.C., xxi. The terms " little house " and " petty " 
are still current in Yorkshire in that sense. 

PATET, usually written p^;. Properly impersonal and intransitive, as " ut 
patet infra," or " patet " simply. Used with per, as " per talliam 
patet," " patet per billam." But the per is often omitted, as " ut 
patet libros ejusdem," " ut patet billam." Sometimes it is causative, 
and has its nominative, as " ut patet tallia," " patet compotus." 

PECTIN', pecunia or pecunice, always contracted. The meaning of pecun* 
stoc\ p. 143, is not evident. 

PELCH, or PELTH ? Mentioned with hides, p. 230. Perhaps a pilch, pellicium, 
an outer garment of hairy or woolly skin, or a pelt, a raw hide.

PICTURA PANNI or PANNOBUM, making " painted cloths," formerly much used 
as wall decorations, and still familiar to Shakespeare, who introduces 
" Slaues as ragged as Lazarus in the painted cloth," Hen. IV, 1, iv, ii, 28; 
see also Tr. and Cr., v, x, 47. 

PILIUS, pileus, a cap. 

PIPER ZINZIPERIS, perhaps ground ginger. 

PIS^E, pease, usually written pis,, but Pise, p. 78, with other Latin names of 
grain, so probably Pisce, not the English Pise for Pease. PiscB is an 
early example of the singular Pise or Pease being mistaken for a 
plural, whence arose the seventeenth century singular Pea. At 
p. 210 we have eorundem pis. for pisorum, from pisum, of which pisa, 
pi. pisce, is a collateral form. 

CRISIS, Pisum arvense, the common " gray " or field pea, with purple 
flowers, and brown when ripe. See GRISIUS. 

VIRIDES, a common variety of Pisum sativum, the white or garden 
pea, with white flowers and the peas light green when ripe. Still an

PHLVIS PESTILENCIJE, p. 52, Pulvis vitalis, p. 45. In reply to an enquiry in 
Notes and Queries, the following reply appeared, March 17th, 1917 : 
" Pulvis pestilencice will probably be the powder against pestilence, 
afterwards included in our old London pharmacopoeias, which con- 
sisted of the powders of sanders wood (white, red, and yellow), basil 
seeds, Armenian bole, cinnamon, dittany, gentian, and tormentil roots, 
the seeds of citron and sorrel, pearls, sapphires, and the bone of a stag's 
heart. Pulvis vitalis would, in all likelihood, be a somewhat similar 
composition, one of the uses of the above, says Culpeper, being to 
" cheer the vital spirits and strengthen the heart. C. C. B." 

PURCYVANT, a pursuivant, p. 19, in this case a j \inior heraldic officer attached 
to a particular nobleman. 

PYNDFALD, a pinfold or pound for the confinement of stray or distrained 

QWESSYN, a cushion. 

QWYKFAKL, pp. 48, 59, 86. The haws that fall from the hawthorns in winter 
(N. Lines., c. 1910). They may have been collected for the propagation 
of quicksets, or the term may have been applied also to the quicksets 


QWYKWOD, quicksets. Fitzherbert says that quicksets should be got in the 
wood, of whitethorn and crab, which are the best, though holly and 
hazel are good. Blackthorn is bad; it spreads into the pastures and 
tears the sheep's wool. This direction explains collectio plantarum 
pro fossa, p. 51. 

QWYTTE, p. 167. Perhaps the surname " White." 

R. The abbreviation " r." may stand for recepit, recepta, respondet, reddit, 

redditus, etc., according to the context.

RASURA, noviciorum, p. 13. The reference probably is to the first tonsure;

by hand, with the square-ended shears sometimes represented on

under the Benedictine and Cistercian rule against quadrupeds in 

monastic diet. Both seals and porpoises frequently appear with fish 

in the Durham Account Rolls, and " pisces et Seylfych " are associated 

in the Fountains Bursars' Books, p. 56. 
SEYM, sagma, a seam or packhorse load. 

SIGNUM S. WILFRIDI, St. Wilfrid's burning-iron. See ARSURA.

drainage that he had collected, which would be valuable for tillage. 
STAGIS, " stags," young horses, colts, or fillies. See FILY STAGE. 
STAURUM, live stock other than sheep and cattle; mostly horses.

classed with TWYNTERS, q.v., p. 138. 
STOCKFISH, salt cod or ling, often sun-dried, largely imported from Iceland and 

Norway, hence called " Iceland fish," and bought at Hull, York, and 

STOR', see under PECUN'. 
STROMES, strums, wicker baskets placed inside the bungholes during the process 

of brewing, to strain off the clear liquor. From p. 202 it would appear 

that they were sometimes made of rush matting. 


STUDHERD, pp. 180, 252. A servant, probably one in charge of a stud of 

horses. See " Places named." 
STURD, suffering from the staggers, giddy, from water on the brain. E.D.D.

a similar kind. 

TALL, tallia, a stick split lengthwise, on which a notch is cut across the 
junction while the two pieces are held together, one notch for each 
article counted, so that the half notches fit or tally one with another. 
One half of the stick is kept by each party to the transaction, and so 
the reckoning appears, " ut patet per talliam." The " stocks," or 
bakers' halves, that fit the swatches, foils, or counterstocks, may still 
be seen hanging on their carts in some places on the continent, so that 
each loaf delivered may be recorded by a notch on two sticks, one, the 
stock, travelling with the baker, and the other, the swatch, foil, or 
counterstock, retained by the customer. See N.E.D., under Swatch. 

TANNARIA, the tanyard, where the barkhouse and the barkmill that are 
mentioned in Vol. I, pp. 308, 309, 386, would most likely be. 

TANNUM, oak bark used in tanning.

apparently denoting foremen or taskmasters who looked after the 
threshers and other labourers. 

TECTURA, the covering in of a building with any roofing material, such as 
tiles, slates, etc., but especially with what is now called " thatch." 
The term tectura was applied to coarse grass as well as to other materials 
used for thatch, pp. 53n, 83. Medowthake is frequently mentioned 
in the Durham Account Rolls. Bede says that St. Cuthbert's cell 
and oratory were covered foeno ; the Metrical Life says " thekyd 
with hay." Symeon uses the same term in relating how Walcher's 
monks re-roofed ruined Jarrow. An old woman in Lincolnshire, 
c. 1815, said that there were so many snakes and adders about that 
they were forced to set thack afire to get rid of them, meaning the 
rough grass growing around; and the word " thacke " is used in 
the same way in the Bottes/ord Manor Rolls, quoted in Peacock's 

TEMPLE, hazel rods fixed across thatch to keep it in its place. E.D.D. 

THREVE, thrave, properly a " stook " consisting of a variable number of 
sheaves, but many passages in which the word occurs read as if it 
there meant only a single sheaf or bundle. 

TOLT, a writ by which a cause was removed from a court baron, that of the 
lord of a manor, to the county qourt. Anglo-Fr. , tolte, toulte ; Med. 
Lat., tolta, from toller 'e, to take up, lift. 

TORTA, tortia, a torch; connected with torquere, to twist. 

TRANSUMPTUM, a transcript or extract.

TUBNUS VICECOMITIS, Sheriff's Turn, the King's court in a county, in which 
the Sheriff was judge, taking a " turn " or circuit through the shire. 

TUTIVILLUS, TITIVILLUS, TiTiviL. The name of a little devil who, according 
to a Cistercian legend, collected fragments of words dropped in Divine 
service and carried them to his master, the " accuser of the Brethren," 
in a bag. Hence, a tell-tale or tale-bearer. In these Accounts the 
name frequently occurs, and it seems to be applied to some Memo- 
randum Books, perhaps such as contained records of bad or doubtful 
debts. So we find " patet per tutivillum Bursarii," " per tutivillum 
anni praesentis," etc. In the medieval Mysteries or Miracle Plays 
the merry devil Tutivillus is employed in much of the comic business. 

TWYNTEBS, cattle of two winters old. 

ULCETUM, apparently the same as ULcea, a pasture. D'Arnis. 

UBENALIS, a Jordan or chamber-utensil, or a flask for the same purpose, or 

for that of medical inspection.

Chapter Acts, 1485, 371, we find " hayr pro ustrina," hair-cloth for a 

maltkiln, so that ustrina had both meanings. 

VENTILACIO, winnowing. 

VEBMYON, vermilion or cinnabar, much used in illumination of MSS., etc. 
VINUM DULCE, Malmsey or some such wine, about twice the price of the

WAFBONEB, one who provided wafers or biscuits, p. 59, here used as a surname. 

WAPENTAGIUM, a wapentake, or, a Wapentake Court. 

WARLAND, p. 36. There is a North Yorkshire word Ware, meaning " barley
